The events of Sept. 11 shocked the United States as perhaps nothing has done since Pearl Harbor.
But destruction of the World Trade Center towers is not the only act of evil perpetrated in the past hun-
dred years. Images shown represent individuals and groups affected by horrors of the past century.
|eyo 11 d Blajphemy,
Albert Camus' classic novel, The Plague, is a metaphor for
our world of suffering. Published just after the Second World
War, Camus' story describes the tragic city of Or an, quaran-
tined from the rest of the world because of the bubonic
plague. Once a city of excess and indulgence, Oran becomes
defined by death and the residents struggle to respond to their
suffering. The narrator, Dr. Bernard Riuex, takes a scientific
and detached view of the horrors surrounding him. He
acknowledges, however, that the reality of suffering draws
people together. Regardless of religious beliefs or personal
convictions, suffering is "beyond blasphemy, beyond prayer"
in the way it unites people to weep, to work and to fight
Every worldview and religion is forced to deal with the
issue of suffering. It cuts to the heart of our fragile existence.
When we see news reports of a destructive hurricane in India
and a famine in Kenya, we all weep. The agonized faces of
children grip the heart of every parent. The helplessness of the
injured and grieving motivate us to give, pray and work. We
don't ask questions about political beliefs, religious affiliation
or ethnic background. We are bound together by a bond
stronger than social agendas. It is the bond of humanity and
the suffering that marks us as a fallen people.
Suffering unites us all. It is the one experience that pulls at
the soul of every person and dynamites the walls that divide
us. We all meet and cry together at the smoldering ruins, the
hospital, the funeral home. Since September 11, the unity we
as a nation experience defies analysis. For some it is the result
of facing a single enemy, for others it is the force of a common
The Problem of Evil
from Making Sense of Your World,
by W. Gary Phillips and William E. Brown
The problem of evil is the shadow that falls across the biblical teach-
ing about God's character. Why does an all-good and all-powerful God
allow evil in His creation. How do we reconcile the pain in the world,
and the pain in our own lives, with the character of the God we see in
By "evil" we mean both moral evil and natural evil. The term moral
evil refers to the evil choices made by free human agents. Natural evil
does not involve human willing or acting, nor does it necessarily reflect
any observable, intelligent purpose.
A View of the Future: The Factor of Time
This is logically coherent and is precisely what the Bible claims.
Although we do not yet have enough data to answer why each individ-
ual act of suffering takes place, we have a reasonable perspective within
which to deal with our pain. Is our biblical worldview large enough to

The component of time is crucial to a biblical worldview of evil
(Rom. 8:18). One day, God will wipe away all tears from our eyes (Rev.
21:4). Until then, even saints in the Lord's presence wail "How long O
Lord?" as they anticipate cosmic restoration (Rev. 6:10).
Let us reconsider our original propositions:

From a biblical worldview, the ultimate apo]
evil is God's action (through Christ) in becomin
the victim of maximum evil. God took the pun-
ishment of sin upon Himself. He became man,
and in that form He — and He alone — suffered
the entire composite of human evil and misery.
Not only did He bear our sins, he bore our emo-
tional pain (Isa. 53:4).

Before drawing the conclusion, the last proposition should be
reworded to fit with our biblical worldview. This is how it should read:
Evil has not yet been destroyed. Thus we may draw a new conclusion:
Evil will be destroyed by an all-good, all-powerful God.

goal. But for most, it is the grief of suffering that has no name.
We can ask why God did not keep it from occurring. We can ask the
same question about the millions slaughtered in the name of atheism by
Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Idi Amin. We can ask why He allowed Dylan
Klebold and Eric Harris to rampage through Columbine High School.
But the answers are not apparent.
Many nonbelievers arrogantly point to the existence of suffering in
the world as the once-and-for-all proof that a good God cannot exist.
And if a good God cannot exist then there is, in fact, no God at all. The
existence of evil, writes philosopher Ed Miller, "is the most notorious
evidence against God."
But I do not want to discuss the existence of God in light of evil in
our world. We have written about this elsewhere (see the excerpt from
Making Sense of Your World in this issue of Bryan Life). C. S. Lewis
devotes some of his sharpest reasoning in his classic work, The Problem
of Pain, where he reminds us that our response to suffering reveals our
understanding of God. "The problem of reconciling human suffering
with the existence of God who loves," he writes, "is only insoluble so
long as we attach a trivial meaning to the word 'love/ and limit His wis-
dom by what seems to us to be wise."
We may not know the reasons God allows suffering in particular
instances. God's ways are sometimes beyond knowing on this side of
But one day we will know. Until then, suffering is a foil - a means to
saltiness in an unsavory world.
Suffering provides a level playing field for ideas.
The unity we enjoyed in the months after the terrorist attacks provid-
ed us with the opportunity to look each other in the eye - even ideologi-
cal adversaries - and relate at the most basic levels of humanity. While
discussions about ultimate questions, political issues or social policies
usually generate more heat than light, the attacks changed that. We want
substance, not sound bites.
Studies and polls showed that people became less interested in frivo-
lous activities and more serious about family and relationships. People
went to church and prayed more. Incidents of bigotry and racism
dropped dramatically. People were actually nicer to each other! Why?
Because we recognize that what unites us is stronger than what divides
us. Suffering makes us aware of a truth that we all try to suppress: we
are not in control of our lives.
Suffering shows that there is something wrong with the world.
When we feel a pain in our body, it is a symptom that something is
wrong. We never go the doctor and say, "Hey, Doc, I've been feeling
really great lately. Can you run some tests and find out why?" The pain
and suffering in the world is a constant reminder that something is hor-
ribly wrong with creation. To know that something is wrong is to imply
that we know what it means to be right.
The opportunity to communicate to a suffering
world how God can make it right is the Christian's
privilege. We give an answer for the hope that is
within us (1 Peter 3:15).
Suffering is only engaged and conquered by the
One who suffered with us and for us.
The suffering of Christ is not merely intended
to show God's empathy for a fallen world. He took
upon Himself the very consequences of the sin
that spoiled His creation. Christ suffered "once for
all" (Hebrews 9:12) and because of His sufferings
all pain takes on a new meaning as temporary irri-
tant, not ultimate victor. Even death itself will be
the last enemy destroyed (1 Corinthians 15:25-26).
We are never victims and we will never allow suf-
fering, no matter how evil and destructive, to
drive us to despair.
Suffering is the means God uses to communicate to
us in His most passionate way.
Many claim that suffering drives people away
from God. It is an odd quirk of human nature that
most often the opposite occurs. We as a nation
turned to God in prayer after the attacks. Not out
of fear or weakness but out of knowledge and
strength. Pain is, as C. S. Lewis reminds us,
For many people, suffering is the road
traveled to find God and meaning.
Viktor Frankl, thrust into the ugly hope-
lessness and horror of the Nazi death
camps, not only survived but grew
through his experience. He described
working in a trench outside of
Auschwitz, "struggling to find a
reason for my sufferings, my slow
dying. In a last violent protest
against the hopelessness of
imminent death, I sensed in
my spirit piercing
through the envelop-
ing gloom. I felt it
transcend that hopelessness, meaningless world,
and from somewhere I heard a victorious 'Yes' in
answer to my question of the existence of an ulti-
mate purpose. At that moment a light was lit in a
distant farmhouse, which stood on the horizon as
if painted there, in the midst of the miserable gray
of a dawning morning in Bavaria. Et lux in tenebris
lucet - and the light shineth in the darkness."
A meaningful and happy life is not always free
from suffering. In fact, suffering is often the means
to a life of joy and significance.
But this does not take away the real horror of
suffering. We cannot give a definitive answer to
those who ask why God allowed the horrible acts
to occur. The answer is not found in a pronounce-
ment or a philosophy.
It is found in a Person.
"Is God trying to tells us something?" writes
Philip Yancey. "From the view of all history, yes,
God is speaking to us through pain - or, perhaps,
in spite of pain. The symphony He is working out
includes minor chords, dissonance and tiring fugal
passages. But those of us who follow His conduct-
ing through these early movements will, with
renewed strength, someday burst into song." lil

where does God fit in?
By Serge Yurovsky, Class of '98
Living in New York, you take certain things for
granted. You assume it will be standing-room-
only in the subway this afternoon, that a good
bagel is just around a corner and that your next
cab driver probably knows the city worse than you
do. You are also used to looking at the skyline and
seeing two tall steel giants holding up the skies
over this busy city.
At least we used to.
As I sit in the subway crossing the Manhattan
Bridge, the sight still causes me to pause. The twin
giants are gone and so are the hopes and dreams of
over 4,000 people and their families. New Yorkers
are asking big questions now: "Where was God on
Sept. 11?" and more importantly 'Where is He
I can tell you with full certainty - God is here
now! He is in this city, His presence stronger than
ever, His Word armed with the power to heal and
rebuild both the lives of the people and the heart
of the city.
God is in the little things, like the hundreds of
calls and e-mails that many New Yorkers and I
have received from friends all over the world. You
can feel God's presence on the streets when you
see just a bit more kindness than is normal in the
city. These days someone may share a cab with
you, give up a seat on the subway or even not be
quick to anger when you bump in to them on the
God is also in the bigger things. His word rings
on many street corners from Union to Times
Square. Churches are fuller now than anytime in
the recent past. People are seeking answers and
peace. While everyone from Hare Krishna to
Jehovah's Witnesses are trying to convince people
that they have the truth, I believe God's truth and
His Word are prevailing.
The church where I worship is in Greenwich
Village, half a block from St. Vincent's hospital, the
medical facility where the majority of WTC victims
were taken on 9/11. Walls of the hospital are cov-
ered with pictures and posters of loved ones lost.
There I have encountered much grief, anger and
despair. Still, those people are looking for some-
thing to hang on to.
My church and many others have opened their
doors and hearts to the city. Thanks to the prayers
and support of believers from around the world,
they are able to provide emotional, physical and
financial support to those who need it. More
important, this tragedy has opened the broken
hearts of this city to the Gospel.
As I walk near Ground Zero, the sight is terrify-
ing and the smell of death and destruction lingers.
Still, I believe this is a great time for New York. We
cannot afford to let this amazing opportunity slip
away. Please point your hearts to this city, this
place that is in a desperate need of God. Don't let
the vigor of your prayers fade away as the dust
settles, the smoke clears and our lives get back to
the daily busyness.
This city will rebuild. The big question is "How
much will it embrace God and His love to allow all
of us to rebuild our hearts?"

People of the east, including Muslims, are very friendly and hos-
pitable. We were always amazed at the amount of food provided for
what was to be a simple meal. At times when I was alone at home a
Muslim friend would urge me to stay with him and enjoy the compa-
ny of another human being.
But we found that when talking about Jesus or the Bible, Muslims
were quick to tell us our errors while defending Islam as the perfect
There are good Muslims and bad Muslims, just as there are good
Christians and bad Christians. As I see it, God gave His law to His
people who were not able to live by that law in a way that pleased
God. God then revealed grace through Jesus Christ. About 600 years
later in reverse of this grace the prophet of Islam came bringing back
the law of God. "These are the requirements of Allah. Do this and you
will please him."
What is done outwardly in Islam seems very important. The pious
Muslim can make me feel irreligious as he does his formal public
prayers five time a day, as he fasts for one month during the year,
gives alms to the poor, etc. In contrast, I've never had a Muslim offer
to pray with me or for me. Islamic religious leaders interpret right and
wrong, define the "law," and lead in the acts of devotion, but are not
"priests" who mediate between God and man. Interestingly, every fol-
lower of Christ is a priest who can pray with Muslim friends. I have
never had a Muslim refuse prayer. In fact, they come to expect it.
A Muslim cannot be neutral toward the enemies of Islam. Muslims
believe that Islam is the perfect religion and if followed completely the
perfect government, economic and social systems will follow. They
believe the current disarray in Muslim countries cannot be blamed on
the religion of Islam, but it can be blamed on the Christian West,
which is forcing its values on the Muslim world. Therefore, certain
Muslims have decided to fight against the West to break its grip on
their society. To fight for Islam may be the greatest work possible for
pleasing Allah. To be martyred in such a fight is to gain instant access
Christians have something else to offer. Recently, a Muslim wrote me
saying that it is impossible and ridiculous to love your enemies. "Such a
statement is proof of the inadequacy of the Bible showing that it has
been superseded by the Q'uran and that Islam is superior."
In a tourist area a Pakistani boy was throwing stones at a foreign
child. The Pakistani family grabbed the boy, apologizing profusely.
The foreign family said, "We can forgive, because our God has
taught us to love even our enemies." Hearing this, a young Muslim
man started his journey toward this God of love who teaches us to
love our enemies, fill

"We're really, really young," Coach Morris Michalski said
of the 2001-2002 Lions basketball squad. "We have 16 on the
team and only five of them are back from last year. Of those
five, only one was a consistent starter last year, and for three of
the five, last year was their first year playing varsity ball.
Replacing over 65 points per game in offense will not be easy
and again the schedule is brutal."
Coach Michalski is counting on returning players and co-
captains Brett Wright, a junior point guard, and senior shoot-
ing guard Jared Jones to provide crucial leadership for the
young team, but he's looking for new team members to step
forward as well.
Another returning player who has caught his eye early is
sophomore Chris Travis, a guard. "I'm really pleased with the
way Chris has improved. We're trying to build a lot of things
with him in mind."
Because of the team's youth
and the loss of its big players to
graduation and other plans, Coach
Michalski said the style of play will
be different. "We'll press and run
more. We should be very exciting
for our fans," he said.

Coach Zensen singled out senior Isidro Loaiza for

He also commended Brian Eisenback for his com-

Gray Douglas and Dan Harvey "no longer were
playing as freshmen by the end of the season."

A 10-6-1 record, a top-10 national ranking and a trip
to the NCCAA national tournament have Lady Lions
soccer Coach Marc Neddo singing the praises of his
team, as well as looking for more excitement next year.
The Lady Lions spent three weeks at No. 1 in the
NCCAA and finished the season in the top 10. Bryan
won the Mid-East Regional title by forfeit and the trip
to the nationals.
The Lady Lions lost both games at the tournament,
but Coach Neddo was pleased with the experience.
The coach had particular praise for freshman for-
ward Abby Snead, who scored 32 goals this season. She
led the conference in scoring and was first in the
He also praised senior Becky Kalz, a sweeper, who
"was the leader of the team. She anchored the defense
and was a major reason we had 10 shutouts."
He also recognized Esther Bragg and Rachel Palmer
for their contributions. Esther was second-leading scor-
er and second in assists, and Rachel "was one of our
most improved players."

Bryan's volleyball team finished second in the NCCAA Mid-East Regional tournament
before falling in the conference playoff.
Coach Jerri Beck's charges compiled a 17-16, 10-6 record in the Appalachian Athletic
Conference, and were ranked fourth.
The Lady Lions' fourth-place conference finish was one better than a year ago, and with a
young squad the coach is optimistic about next year's prospects. "We will lose (senior) Kelly
Braun-Duin and will miss her leadership and court performance. But we're still a young
team. It's been encouraging to see us come together."
B AS EB ALL COACH
A former college baseball player who spent 14 years as a
scout for four major league teams has his sights set high for
Bryan's new baseball program.
Preston Douglas, Bryan's new baseball coach, has a
national championship as one of his goals. "I went to the
College World Series as a player, and I want to go back as a
coach," he said. "There's no experience like it."
But winning on the field is only part of his dream. "I
want all our players to graduate, to be better in every area
of their lives when they graduate."
Coach Douglas was attracted to Bryan because of the
people, the quality of the facilities and the college's com-
mitment to a first-rate baseball program.
"I said if this is where I'm going to coach, this is where I
want to retire. This is a place where I can serve the Lord,"
Coach Douglas, a graduate of Pembroke State College,
earned his Master's degree from Western Carolina
University between stints as a high school and junior col-
lege coach. He scouted for the Angels, White Sox, Brewers
and Cubs before moving back into coaching at Montreat

SEES NEW BEGINNING
It's a new beginning for the 2001-02 edition of the Lady
Lions basketball team in more ways than one.
New Coach Jim Arnold, three freshmen and one senior
who transferred to Bryan this year, join the nine returning
players seeking to improve on the team's nine-victory season
from a year ago. Coach Arnold, a 1998 Bryan graduate,
returned to Dayton this summer from Orlando, Fla., where he
taught and coached high school boys and AAU girls team.
The Lady Lions' roster includes three freshmen, six sopho-
mores, two juniors and two seniors, "so we're an extremely
young team," the coach said. "But I believe we will be very
competitive in the conference."
He said he is encouraged that the girls came to the opening
practice in good physical condition and seems to be coming
together as a team.
Coach Arnold said he is particularly counting on senior

Appleseed-esque" suspense, they did provide for some interesting research and a nun
ber of fascinating results. For those alumni who possess a keen "Trivial Pursuit" mind

Dr. Phillips, who resigned at the end of the 2000-2001
school year to become a full-time pastor, said, "In our coun-
try, and here at Bryan College, we have learned the hard les-
sons that buildings are really buildings; it's the people who
are eternal. I think Bryan College has never been stronger,
because it's not a matter of buildings, it's a matter of vision
before God, of Who He is and who we are in light of that."
Saturday's dedication service featured remarks by two
members of Tennessee's congressional delegation, Fourth
District Rep. Van Hilleary and Third District Rep. Zach
Wamp. Rep. Hilleary congratulated the college on being "an
example of what can be achieved when generosity and
resolve turn into action." Rep. Wamp commented on the ter-
rorist attacks against this country, pointing out that positive
results of the attacks have been a renewal of national unity
and interest in spiritual, particularly Christian, values.
Bryan President Dr. William E. Brown announced that
the college trustees voted to name the student center in
honor of Erwin D. "Lat" and Lane Latimer. Mr. Latimer has
served on the board since 1992, and co-chaired the fund-rais-
ing campaign that resulted in construction of the building.
In addition, Vice President for Business Dee Mooney
announced that the new clock on the Triangle has been
named for the late Billie Barrows, a former trustee and
mother of present trustee Betty Ruth Seera.
Following the program on the Triangle, Dr. Brown host-

Among those attending were former Bryan librarians Ginny
Seguine Schatz and David Wright.
During Saturday evening's Celebration 2001 program,

program costs of the Worldview Studies Institute, scholar-
ship needs and campus improvements including a new
gymnasium, residence hall, expansion of Rudd Auditorium
and construction of a new entrance to the college.

show, with spectators spread out on the Grassy Bowl as well
as in Point Park at the foot of Bryan Hill.
